I'm in the process of refactoring the analog tuner.ko module such that
analog tuner modules will use the same internal api as dvb_frontend *
modules. I have completed phase one of this refactoring process this
past weekend, but there are still some bugs left that I must fix before
publishing the work. I had to leave town unexpectedly, and it's
difficult to work on this remotely.
In phase 2 of the refactoring, the tda8290+tda8275(a) drivers will
undergo a structural redesign, in which support for the tda8295 and
tda18271 will be added.
In addition, tuner-simple will need its own redesign, although I am
saving that for last -- but that's irrelevant to your question.
What device do you have that uses the tda18211? So far, I am only aware
of one device available on retail shelves that use the tda18271 -- I'm
curious what you're working with.
